    install.packages("readr")

  3. Load the DBI library and provide the connection details as shown below:

     library(DBI)
     con <- dbConnect(
         bigrquery::bigquery(),
         project = "<project ID>",
         dataset = "<dataset>",
         billing = "<project ID>"
     )
    
  4. Run a command to query your data. For example: dbListTables(con) will list all the tables in the selected dataset.
